Welcome To Canning & District
Meet Your New Director!
Jennie Weisner officially started as the Recreation Director in Canning in early November, just a few short weeks ago. She has strong ties to the Canning & District area as she attended both Glooscap and is a NKEC graduate, always being involved in her school and community through athletics and extra-curricular activities. She was the Recreation Intern in Canning during a co-op term while completing her degree in Kinesiology from Memorial University and later gained further recreation and programming experience as the Recreation Intern & Special Events Coordinator for New Minas Recreation. She has a strong sense of community and pride here and has every intention to devote her time and energy into re-energizing the recreation scene with the help and support of community members and local facilities. Jennie is always open to conversation and ideas about what activities and events you want to see here! She is also looking to support current programming and initiatives!
